Arteta tipped to succeed Guardiola at Man City 

Man City have ‘identified’ Mikel Arteta as their outstanding choice to lead the club when Pep Guardiola walks away in the summer of 2025.

Reports in Spain claim that City chiefs see Arteta as the ideal candidate to replace his countryman at the Etihad, having been wowed by the work he has done with Arsenal since leaving his role as Guardiola’s No. 2 back in 2019.

The report adds that "despite the attempts that the board has made to ensure that he stays at the Emirates Stadium for a long time, so far they have all been fruitless.

"He has not seemed particularly convinced with this option, and it seems that he has decided to start a new adventure in a club that guarantees him a higher budget, and above all, much more freedom when it comes to making the squad."

Guardiola's current deal at the Etihad comes to an end at the end of the 2024/25 campaign, the same as Arteta. Fabrizio Romano also revealed it is widely expected that Guardiola will indeed walk away from City come next summer.

However, we expect our manager to remain with us.
